Hikes for Birdwatchers

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Supe.....oh, wait, that actually is just a bird. No need to be dissapointed that it isn't a red-caped superhero, though! A wide array of birds fly through Shenandoah during migration periods, and many rely on the protected forests for important mating grounds during the summer, making the Park a premier birdwatching destination.

All of the following recommended hikes are designated birding and wildlife viewing sites on the Virginia Bird & Wildlife Trail, which means that they provide great opportunities to see birds, as well as other wildlife, while you're out on the trail. So, grab some binoculars (to give you superhuman vision) and head out on your next birding adventure!
